    Re: Another rabbi goes to jail.

    This links to the Milton Balkany case of a few years ago. Is this news?

  2. What are the issues with using social media to help agunos? How is it different from the rallies etc. that ORA organizes?

    1. “hebrew schools” should read “sunday school” (though the article points to other days of the week, including (reform) shabbat, called saturday).

    2. the proper rabbinic guidance should apply to all forms of pressure used, not just “new technology”, which is really old tech in a new forum.
